Dark chocolate avocado truffles
Dark chocolate avocado truffles for an intense chocolate hit minus the guilt.
Servings: 15 truffles
- 200 g dark chocolate at least 75% cocoa solids
- 1 ½ tablespoon good quality runny honey
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ large avocado or 1 small avocoado very ripe
- pinch of salt
- 1-2 small handfulls desicated coconut
Melt the chcolate in a heatproof bowl above some simmering water ( do not let the bowl touch the water and turn off the heat when it come to a boil ) along with the honey, vanilla extract and salt.
Spoon out the avocado flesh from it's skin and place in a food processor. Let the chocolate cool slightly then add the chocolate mixture and blitz until comletely smooth and thickened. Place the mixture in the fridge to solidfy a little more for 15-20 minutes.
Once out the fridge, roll into little bowls using a teaspoon as measurement and place onto a plate or tray covered in baking parchment. Once you have your truffles, roll them in some desicated coconut or nuts or your choice ( I really like chopped hazelnuts ). Enjoy at room tempeture and store in the fridge.
